Registered Staff Hours
On top of earning a great overall score, this facility performed even better in our inspections category which is based on the nursing home's recent government inspections. We gave it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. The nursing score includes quite a few factors, but the main one is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as employing a system of moving a resident even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home was given a strong long-term care grade as well. We awarded it one of our better grades in that category with a grade of B+. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 90.47619 percent of its residents. This is a few points less than we expected. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, at least this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we looked at was short-term care, which proved to be this nursing home's worst category. We gave it a lowly F in this area, which is certainly somewhat concerning. Our short-term care ratings are arguably more important for those in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
